Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres – part 6

1835 Self-Portrait

Musée du Louvre, Paris

Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780 – 1867) was a French Neoclassical artist. Although he considered himself to be a painter of history in the tradition of Nicolas Poussin and Jacques-Louis David, by the end of his life it was Ingres's portraits, both painted and drawn, that were recognised as his greatest legacy.

For a full biography see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1 - 5 also.

This is part 6 of a 8 – part series on the works of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres:

The Martyrdom of Saint Symphorian

Ingres here depicts Saint Symphorien, a Roman Christian of the second or third century, being led to his execution for his contempt of a pagan image. Symphorien's mother shouts encouragement to him from the city wall. In the fifth century, a church in honour of Symphorien was built at Autun, France, the scene of his martyrdom. In 1834, Ingres completed a monumental altarpiece of the subject for the cathedral at Autun, and some thirty years later he painted this small-scale replica:
